Dharm Jagran Samanway Samtiti, an RSS affiliate, has resolved to stop conversion by 2020 and continue ghar wapsi (reconversion) so that the Hindu population increases by the next census in 2021.
DJRS has pledged to reach in the next five years all areas that have seen people being converted, particularly to Christianity. This target was given to all DJRS state chiefs at a meeting in Mumbai from August 7 to 9, sources said.
The sources quoted their national chief Mukund Rao Pansikar as saying that “we must fulfil our target of stopping all type of conversion activities and increasing efforts of ghar wapsi by 2020.” Pansikar could not be contacted by The Indian Express.

The sources said many of the 100-odd delegates at the meeting expressed the view that ghar wapsi is more difficult in Muslim-dominated areas than it is among Christians, hence the focus on the latter areas. Also, they felt, most of those converted are from the lower castes and acceptability would not be a problem if they are “reconverted”.
The meeting saw a PowerPoint presentation that compared the growth rates of Muslims and Christians with that of Hindus. The 40 state chiefs — the RSS breaks the country into that many states for convenience — spelt out their individual targets for preventing conversion.
The DJRS is a core affiliate in which the RSS deploys 57 pracharaks, the highest for any RSS-related activity other than its own shakhas. It has many more whole-timers, who unlike pracharaks are paid an honorarium. The highest numbers of whole-timers, over 100, are posted in Chhattisgarh, where DJRS believes conversion among tribals to Christianity is the most rampant.
